San Diego Personal Injury Attorney Lawyer I Hot Coffee the Movie

By Ross Jurewitz on June 27, 2011

Hot Coffee15 years after the incident‚ the McDonald’s coffee case continues to be criticized and cited as an example of how an average citizen used a “frivolous” lawsuit to take advantage of America’s legal system. However‚ that story is far from the truth.

Director-producer Saladoff‚ who spent 25 years practicing law in the civil justice system representing victims of individual and corporate negligence‚ challenges the long-held belief that average citizens can take unfair advantage of the American legal system with their frivolous lawsuits that lead to “jackpot justice.”

In her documentary film Hot Coffee‚ which premieres on HBO tonight at 6 p.m. PST‚ viewers find out what really happened in the infamous “McDonald’s hot coffee” lawsuit. The movie looks at what actually happened to Stella Liebeck‚ why the case got so much media attention‚ who funded the effort‚ and who really profited from spilling hot coffee.

Hot Coffee is a “call to action.” The documentary takes a look at four cases that show how Americans are surrendering their Constitutional rights in all sorts of ways without even knowing it and how they are being screwed by the system-not taking advantage of it. By voting for caps on damages or agreeing to mandatory arbitration embedded in the fine print of contracts‚ Americans are giving up our fundamental right to access the legal system and not getting the compensation they need and deserve.

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed because of a defective product or negligent person‚ you are entitled to damages. The California personal injury attorneys at the Jurewitz Law Group will protect your Constitutional rights and get the money you need to cover medical costs‚ lost wages‚ and all other accident-related expenses.
